If they insult our religion, we have to riot …


A 17-year old boy in Denmark has been caught by the police. He’s accused of attempting to instigate rebellion and rioting. It has been five days now, and the beautiful old city of Copenhagen is burning in flames due to rioting teenagers, left-wingers, and now, apparently, muslim youths. The guy said that it was because of the caricatures of Muhammed that he thought of it as just and right to go out burning cars and throwing molotov cocktails at innocent.

“If they insult our religion, we have to riot.”

Brilliant conclusion, isn’t it? Are these the kind of people we want to decide our agenda for us?
I’m willing to tolerate the intolerant, but are the intolerant tolerant enough to tolerate us?

    I haven’t read any good reports on who is responsible for the rioting, other than “Muslim Danes”. Do you have any better information on what is going on?

    Well, there are Danish teenagers basically, and the reason why they are rioting are twofold. Firstly, they feel “mistreated” by the police and the Danish state, and secondly Muslim and Danish left-wing teenagers joined forces to destroy private cars and property in order to show that Islam is a really peaceful religion.
